Show season has started and BlackJack has decided to host a show at the Horse Park in Woodside, California. This will be an effort show. The weather will be nice, a little muddy from spring showers, but arena good enough to ride in. All Classes will be located in green fencing arenas shown in these pictures: s3-media4.ak.yelpcdn.com/bphot…
Reining is a Western competition of a rider guiding their horse through a precise pattern consisting of circles, spins, and stops all paced at a lope of gallop. The horse and rider should be in-tune with one another and the rider's cues should not be easily seen. Horse should be willing so any horse than pins its ears, bucks, refuses, or shows any sign of irritation or an ugly attitude will be judged accordingly.
Western Pleasure is an event that evaluates a horse's relaxed gates of a walk, jog, or lope. The ride needs to be a comfortable, smooth ride.
Barrel Racing is a rodeo event which rider and horse try to complete a clover-pattern around barrels at the safest, but fastest time. Barrels are blue and white. Knocking over a barrel is a 5 second penalty. Knocking over all barrels is a disqualification.
Pole Bending is a event which a horse and rider maneuver through a series of six poles at the fastest time. Each pole knocked over is 5 second penalty.
Team Penning is a fast-paced rodeo event that needs at least two riders and horses. 2 or 3 yearling longhorn cattle have pained numbers 0-9 painted on their hindquarters. The numbers that are called out are the ones that are to be separated from the herd, pen them, and call the time.
Bronc Riding is a rodeo sport where a rider is supposed to stay on a bucking horse for 8 seconds without touching the horse with his or her free hand. Horses will be provided for this event, and an adoption will be held at the end of the rodeo.
Halter is a class based on the horse's appearance and conformation. This will be divided by breed. Handlers are not required, but a entry with a handler has a better chance of placing higher than an entry without.
